Drone swarm management software UgCS DDC enriched with ArtNET

SPH Engineering is bringing drones and entertainment industry more closely by integrating ArtNET protocol into drone swarm management software UgCS DDC. ArtNET integration enables to incorporate drones equipped with show elements into stunning outdoor shows synced to music or live performers.

UgCS Drone Dance Controller (DDC) is developed to manage a swarm of drones equipped with lights, fireworks, smoke generators or other payloads for astonishing shows. ArtNET integration enables drone payload management integrated into the scenario of the show, e.g. music or live performance.

“It is marvelous to see a swarm of drones dance according to a pre-planned flight formations synchronized with music, displaying brand logos or messages. The diverse payload options add “WOW effect” to any show – smoke generators for daytime shows or LED-lights and fireworks for night shows,” says Janis Kuze, SPH Engineering Sales director.

For UgCS DDC testing purposes SPH Engineering is operating a fleet of 25 UAV running ArduCopter and equipped with RTK GPS units, RGB LED modules and a Wi-Fi adapter. Instructions to replicate the drones is published on GitHub: https://github.com/ugcs/ddc.
